tiny treasures - black and white houndstooth chair

My favourite chair is an old black and white houndstooth recliner in our living room. It belonged to my Grandma and was a regular fixture around the house when my Mom was young. It has a matching ottoman that is Chapaue's favourite curl up spot and has long since been my favourite sitting place in our home. It's been reupholstered and recovered a dozen time- from red, to white patent leather, to now, black and white checkers. It's old and creaky with the perfect bum and back indent that only a well loved and most comfortable chair can offer. Finn loves to crawl up into it, especially if Jeff or I are already there. He snuggles in to his perfect little nook and insists on reading any and every book within site.
